Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend

The Festival of Sukkot (also Feast of the Tabernacles) begins on Tishri, the 15th day after Yom Kippur. The word Sukkot refers to temporary dwelling places, and the holiday commemorates the 40 year period in which the children of Israel wandered the wilderness, living in temporary huts for protection. In some practices, temporary huts are constructed - which must have ceilings made of organic material - and all eating, praying and sleeping must take place here for the duration of the holiday.
